Expedited Auto Shipping

In most cases, shipping a car to another destination takes time and preparation. You have to research different shipping companies, compare rates, and look for the most cost-effective period to have your car shipped to your new destination.

However, sometimes, time is just not on your side. And, when that happens, you can consider expedited auto shipping to have your car reach your destination in a matter of days.

But, what exactly is expedited shipping, what does it involve, what are the potential costs and the available services?

Let's find out!


What Is Expedited Car Shipping?

When you get an inquiry from an auto shipping company, they will usually tell you that they will be available to pick up and deliver your car in one to two weeks. This time frame can increase considerably if you need your car shipped during the high season. That's because auto shipping companies don't have unlimited resources and need to plan everything very carefully to ensure that their services meet all federal requirements.

With expedited shipping, you can get your vehicle picked up and delivered in just one or two days as opposed to the regular two weeks. By paying more than you do for regular shipping, you enable the company to find room into their schedule to accommodate your order. That often means pushing back delivery or pick up for other customers, hence the hefty price.

How Much Does Expedited Auto Shipping Cost?

Since you are asking the auto carrier to put other customers on the back burner, you can expect to pay more for this service.

But, the urgency of the shipment isn't the only factor that will influence the price. The time of the year, route, and distance can also add to the final bill. For example, you can expect to pay more if you need to ship your vehicle via a heavily-traveled route or during the high season.

If you need basic same-day delivery, such as for a sedan, and the distance is less than 300 miles, then you can expect to pay about $500 for this service.

Of course, as mentioned before, lots of factors can influence the cost, so it's best to get in touch with one of our representatives and tell them about your car delivery needs. You can also get an idea of how much expedited auto shipping might cost you by checking our cost estimation by distance and location resources.


What Is the Fastest Way to Ship a Car

If time is a major concern for you, then you probably don't just need your car picked up as soon as possible but also delivered quickly. But with so many vehicle shipping options out there, which one is the fastest and most reliable one?

The answer is that it depends.

Technically speaking, air freight is the fastest and safest way of shipping a vehicle, but it comes with a hefty price tag. This shipping option could make sense if you own a luxury or collection car and want to ensure that it reaches its destination safely and on time. In this case, the price of the shipping service can be justified as it is way below the value of the vehicle.

If you need to ship a regular car over land, then enclosed auto shipping is the fastest and safest option.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
